Andrade “Cien” Almas lost to Rey Mysterio on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live but Zelina Vega was noticeably absent from the show.
PWInsider reports that Vega is out of action with a concussion. The injury reportedly happened during the Evolution battle royal when she was tossed out of the ring. Vega was eliminated by Nia Jax.
WWE rarely comments on head-related injuries so that is why there is nothing on this on their website but she is being kept off the road as a safety precaution. The belief is that she will be back on the road next week when WWE returns to the United States.
Vega stayed in character when she sent this tweet about her absence from SmackDown Live:
#elidolo @AndradeCienWWE pushed Rey to his limit & should be the one going to @WWE Survivor Series. I knew my associate could handle himself tonight while I handled business elsewhere but WHEN this rematch happens, I’m going to be there and make sure the result isn’t the same.
